As a midwife, I believe that women should be at the heart of their own care. My job is to give lots of education and options and then allow you to make choices based on what may fit your family. I want you to feel a connection with me as we strive to build a long-standing relationship that benefits you and your growing family. Appointments are longer than you might have with an obstetrician, giving more room to ask questions or just visit about life. I truly believe that women have better birth outcomes when relationship and trust develop between a midwife and her client.
Appointments are offered on a schedule similar to obstetric care:
1st appointment done at 8-10 weeks
Every 4 weeks thereafter until 28 weeks
Every 2 weeks until 36 weeks
Weekly until birth
…and as always, communication throughout!
I offer in-house lab work, but sonograms are done off-site. While we use herbs, homeopathics, and supplements, we also believe there is a time for medications. We are lucky to have a physician who sees all of our patients during their pregnancy and also allows us to prescribe and give medications should the need arise.
